Galaxy Aiming for Second Straight Win Against D.C. United

It's game night again here at The Home Depot Center as the LA Galaxy host a struggling D.C. United squad that has scored just 16 goals on the season. However, despite United being all but eliminated from the postseason, the Galaxy still cannot overlook the four-time MLS Cup champs, especially following Real Salt Lake's win over Chicago earlier this afternoon, a result that pulled RSL into a first place tie with the Galaxy in the Western Conference.

Bruce Arena makes one change to the team that defeated Columbus last weekend, giving the newly recalled Yohance Marshall his MLS debut in central defense alongside Omar Gonzalez. He replaces Leonardo, who is rested for the game because of right quad fatigue.

Here is the complete Galaxy squad...






Subs: Saunders, Lewis, Birchall, Beckham, Stephens, Magee, Bowen

And here is how the visitors, D.C. United will lineup for Interim Head Coach Ben Olsen...

Subs: Harrison, Boskovic, Carreiro, McTavish, Simms, Varela

From the line-up put out on the field, it would have seemed that LAG should have had an easier time getting those three points - rather, than leaving it to "over-clocked hail-mary's". According to what I've read so far; it seemed that the final pass in the opposition's final 1/4th of the field were just off. That's not encouraging to hear at all. Then, again, when opposition teams happen to be desperate, hungry, 'all-in' and scrappy - this should not be as a surprise. Again, competitiveness, time constraints, pressure, and creative building - I trult hope these things are stressed every single time our players practice. I don't just mean for our starters - but, for our rookies and subs. Coaches have to fins a way to drive these lessons into the team - the whole team... We don't have that much maneuvering room to mess up.
